UPDATED - Apply for a fast-track certificate of compliance

To help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, you may wish to consider a fast-track certificate of compliance rather than a site visit by one of our officers. Please contact our staff to determine if your development is appropriate. 


You may be able to apply online for a fast-track certificate of compliance. 

A fast-track certificate of compliance does not require a site inspection.

Developments that may be eligible include:

  • additions and alterations such as carports, garages, verandahs, shade sails
  • change of use such as internal fit out works only
  • permitted uses with minor variations ie. variation to building setbacks
  • developments in remote locations
  • sites that are difficult to access.

Instead of DAS conducting a site visit, the required information can be submitted online via photos of the completed development along with the required service authority clearances. You will also need to complete the signed declaration stating that the information you provide is accurate.

For more information on how to use this initiative please click here.
